SEA GIANT

File under: happy/sad; dance/cry

This Spokane synth-and-drum-machine-driven band makes moody 1980s-inspired pop music. Lyrics are desperate, confused diary pages: "I don't think that I could save your life/I don't think I'll even try," they sing on "Close." And behind their words are wailing, circus-like harmonies and dance club beats. It's happy music about being sad.
